      AGW is proganda designed to instil fear in the population (similar to the War on Terror). It is used to justify global governence without popular consent and poplulation control.

        The war on terror is a Rockefeller backed route to a NWO, whereas the Global Warming/climate change scam is a Rothschild backed route.

        Both are intended to herd us to the same destination.

      From this week’s Open Europe newsfeeds:

      “The Guardian notes that a report from MPs has today warned that the European Union’s Emissions Trading System (ETS) is failing to deliver vital green investment after a collapse in carbon prices. The Environmental Audit Committee is calling on the Government to introduce measures such as a new carbon tax to push the price of carbon from its level of €15 (£13) a tonne to what the MPs see as a more credible price of €100, in order to encourage the investment needed in new technologies.

      Tim Yeo, Chairman of the Committee, said: “Emissions trading should be helping us to combat climate change, but at the moment the price of carbon simply isn’t high enough to make it work. The recession has left many big firms with more carbon allowances than they need and carbon prices have collapsed.” He added, “If the Government wants to kick-start serious green investment, it must step in to stop the price of carbon flat-lining. Ministers should seriously explore the possibility of a carbon tax and must press the EU to tighten up the overall caps in the Emissions Trading System.”
      Guardian report here: http://tinyurl.com/yc52rqw

      “Ofgem warns of power blackouts and soaring energy bills to meet EU rules
      The Times reports that energy regulator Ofgem has warned of power blackouts and spiralling consumer prices, and raised the prospect of partial renationalisation of the industry in order to maintain the UK’s energy security…”

      “The Mail reports that Ann Robinson, of the price comparison website uSwitch.com, said energy bills could reach around £5,000 by 2020 in order to cover the required investment.”

      AGW is a massive scam and is constantly being pushed by Yeo (my MP) and the Tories, whose ‘envoronmentaql’ spokesman he is. The taxes resulting are already making life impossible for pensioners and the poor who can’t afford even this winter’s higher heating bills. What they propose will have many dying of hypothermia, chest infections and other cold-related illness.

      AGW fanatiscism is also already costing lives as food prices in the third world rise steeply due to land being sequestered for biofuels.

      And it’s all based on junk science (aka computer modelling). Read all about it on the wattsupwiththat blog, now getting millions of hits per week. Many scientists, inc physicists, geologists,. meterologists, and other relevant skilled such as statisticians post there – it’s become the main clearing house of info and articles on the AGW scenario.

      And on Sunday Phil Jones (disgraced Director of CRU) had the gall to compare himself to Dr David Kelly. The man has no shame.

      The association of black police officers (a fascist racist organisation if ever there was one, why aren’t the fascists in the anti-nazi league attacking this blatantly racist organisation?). Sorry, I digress. The association of black police officers have said that they were “surprised” at the prison sentence. That just shows how far the balance has swung far too far in favour of people of colour in the criminal justice system. It get’s so that crimes are not investigated if the suspect is black for fear of the white investigating officer being unfairly and unjustly branded a racist.

      This particularly foul and dishonest and overtly racist officer who was imprisoned today was taking the piss out of the system. We need a party in power that will redress the balance.

      We need to remove ALL the remaining racist elements in this country. White racism has almost been eradicated and it exists in pockets, but it is severely frowned upon as being utterly socially unacceptable.

      We need to target black and asian racism to do the same. There is an amazing amount of overt, blatant racism in the black and asian communities and it MUST be tackled with the full power of the state. If this does not happen soon, there will be one HELL of a backlash!

    This one is a stretch and I think you will end up in court one of these days if you keep making these giant leaps.

    Its a bit strange that you think MPs who make contacts as part of their job shouldn’t ever engage with those contacts for fiscal gain at some point in the future. You meet people at one function and then do business at another. Unless the work is undeclared I really don’t see an issue unless you can prove that they created the first publicly funded/subsidised event for personal gain. Note the word PROVE.

    Of MUCH MORE concern are MPs that have basically created or helped find funding for some publicly funded quango which they then start doing consultancy for. Spending tax payers money for yet another tax payer funded job is just a farce. I know 1 Labour MP who has done this. Fancy a scoop?

      Engineer says:

      A few years ago, my professional responsibilities included the design of steam pipework, including some rather large ones. One of the problems one has to overcome is to ensure that the thermal expansion that occurs as metal pipes are heated to steam temperatures is properly allowed for, and one way of doing this is by using expansion bellows. The designer has to be careful to support and guide the pipe properly near one of these devices to prevent it’s failure by squirm.

      Jack Straw today demonstrated that he is a poorly-designed axial expansion bellows. Quite small loads applied cause him to deflect significantly, and in front of Chilcott, he failed by squirm.

        To Engineer.
        Yes you needed stay bars to support the bellows because by necessity the bellows needed to be thin enough to expand and contract and I have seen in my time stay bars tightened up too much with awful results.
        On Strawman my idea would be one of his legs tied to each leg of an expansion loop with no give and of course superheated steam.
        OT.Straw pedigree seems to be G/G Grandfather Walter Straw german/jewish immigrant(In Germany Straw spelt as Stroh)he married a woman called Ann?that led to Arthur Wittacker Straw born 1888 in neepsend Yorks this was his G/Father and in turn led to his father Walter Arthur Straw.

      My gut feeling from every poll/commentary I read is that voter apathy is being underestimated. Most people I know think ‘they’re all the same/they’re all as bad as each other/ we’re totally fucked whoever gets in/ fuck the lot of ‘em’. They’re not apathetic in a ‘can’t be arsed’ sense – more that they don’t think anyone is worth/deserves their vote.

      Unless the campaign hots up and polarises so that people are clearer re which ‘side’ they’re on/are more inclined to vote to keep a side out as much as get one in – I think turnout will be low.

      Maybe that’s not properly reflected in the polls as people are reluctant to admit they may not bother (not that I’m that ‘in the know’, I admit, as I simply don’t have the time to look at them in depth).

      Jeez… I’m actually interested in the whole shebang, and I can barely bring myself to face the ballot paper.

    System tinkering will only mask the symptoms it won’t cure the disease that riddles Westminster.

    Voters are well aware that 52% of their MP’s should lose their jobs, indeed parliament could happily lose 52% it would not make a scrap of difference the other 48% would still have little enough to do!

    Expenses cheats have been named, now they should be punished in LAW, proffering up half or dozen or so sacrificial MP lambs isn’t going to put things right.
